HSF for GB P35 board

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a good hsf for a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P

I know everyone will recommend a TR Ultra-120 Extreme or a Tuniq Tower, but Im worried about them clearing the northbridge heatsink.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128047

As you can see, the heatsink is rather large.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks

If I were you, I'd leave that alone. The bigger the better IMO.

And you could easily fit a Tuniq Tower 120, the fins on the TT120 stick out pretty high, so there will be plenty of clearance.

5.5cm to be exact.

You could mount the Ultra 120 Extreme sideways and it would definitely fit. As for the regular way, if Swtethan did it, I assume it's doable. Have fun with your setup.

I wasnt going to mess with northbridge heatsink.

Just wondering if an enormous hsf would clear it. Thanks for all the advice. I think I might go with a Tuniq, depending on where I can find one cheapest. That way I dont have to buy fan on top of the cost of the heatsink, if I were to go with the Ultra-120

Ok, I have another question lol

Im going with the Tuniq Tower, but I have a question about thermal compound application. Im going to use AS5 (duh). I have used the stuff previously on my current computer with the stock hsf because I had to RMA the motherboard, and they way I did it before was to clean the cpu and hsf, then apply the AS5 and thin it out over the cpu heatspreader.

Doing this on my A64 3700+ I have not experienced any problems.

However, the AS5 guide says that for a Quad core (which Im getting) I should just put a line of the compound horizontally over the center of the heatspreader and to not spread it out. (The weight of the hsf will spread it out)

I have read other guides, and seen one video, where they put a rice sized amount of thermal compound on the heatspreader and spread it very thinly over the heatspreader, until it was fully covered. Then they placed any excess compound on the base of the hsf, and using a plastic bag, spread the excess compound on the base, filling in any cracks. Then they installed the hsf.

Which method should I use? Also, Im not planning to lap the hsf or cpu heatspreader, because I know nothing about that kind of stuff.
